the presidential, this is a heavily democratic district in illinois that used to be represented by jesse jackson jr. until he resigned. today in the primary to replace him, gun reform played a huge role in the race. we're going to have results and whatever explanation we have got about those results coming up on the show this hour. and as that illinois congressional election becomes sort of a test case for the democratic party's newfound muscularity and confidence on the issue of gun policy, well, today in washington, vice president biden kept up his very high profile schedule on this issue. the vice president taking this meeting today with a group of really not the usual suspects on the gun issue. and also today, one key legislator announced a really important decision about what is going to happen now on the gun issue. we're going to be getting to that. alaska, don't wet your pants. something is going to happen on guns. try to hold it together. >> furthermore today in washington, the collapse of one of the weirdest d.c. republican tantrums in this era in which we have a lot of weird d.c. republic

disturbing is the actions of folks like the reverend jesse jackson and a message dear, christopher dorner, i understand your feelings of hurt and pain i make the appeal to stop spreading the pain and hurt and fear and please do not take anymore lives and i'll doo whatever i can contact me through danny blakewell at the l.a.-- or bakewell not to be outton, troubled actor charlie sheen decided to insert himself inside the story and a video plea. >> christopher dorner, this is charlie sheen, you mentioned me in your manifesto, thank you for you kind words, i'm urging you to call me, let's figure out together how to end this thing. call me, i look forward to talking to you. >> sean: thank you for your kind words, i look forward to talking to you. does anybody think this is helping? let's take a stroll down memory lane. and remember when gabby giffords was killed and and she produced a map, and how abc news brian ross falsely suggested that the colorado killing was by the tea party. and imagine if chris dorner wrote a manifesto expressing the n.r.a., for mitt romney, michele bachmann, imagine if

would tear out what little hair he had. and the reason is that you saw someone like andrew jackson or harry truman campaigning against congress well and good. but it's only in recent years that you've had this almost nuclear game of chicken that we're seeing now and we also saw in 1995 with bill clinton and newt gingrich. and i think one dangerous thing about right now is that on both sides, people tend to be a little bit sanguine in remembering 1995. through a political lens, there may even be some democrats who say it turned out to be good for the democrats because clinton was able to position himself as a moderate, keeping the barbarians from the gate. and on the republican side they can say yes, we took some heat for being confrontational, but didn't we win both houses of congress in 1996? so i think that memory is a very dangerous thing. and it certainly isn't a break on this rush to the edge of destruction that we're seeing right now. >> because the fights are over fiscal issues and economic issues broadly speaking, i have to ask about how much of a threat to the country we a
. in january, 42 separate murders. now jesse jackson who lives there begging for the federal government to help. >> we must stop these murders, killing of our very young. killed already, numbers bigger than iraq and afghanistan. we need help, more than we have to date. we need federal intervention. >>brian: to make matters worse the chicago police department says it no longer is resourced to take every 911 call. joining us now is senior judge analyst judge napolitano. judge, do you blame them? >> the police always prioritize just like an emergency room in a hospital prioritizes. you save life first and property second. but when they announce to the city of chicago and to the world we're not going to deal with property crimes, don't expect us to respond to 911, that sends a message to the bad guys that everybody is fair game if it's just a property crime. >>brian: homeland security, there is a call from jesse jackson to get homeland security involved in chicago. it's a panic situation. >> that's not the job of the federal government. it's the job of the city of chicago to maintain health and saf
this morning. it's like pea soup out there. that's hartsfield-jackson airport. the fog so thick it kept planes from landing. meteorologist indra petersons joins us with more. >> good morning. the good news we're seeing that lift here. visibility less than a quarter of a mile. i want to get to the big story everyone is talking about, the potential for a nor easter to develop friday night in through saturday morning, all thanks to a low that could merge with a second low that could drop out of canada. first severe storms, heavy rain and wind moving up the eastern seaboard. we are talking about heavy snow, rain and wind moving into the northeast. we'll be right back. like a lot of things, trying to find a better job can be frustrating. so at university of phoenix we're working with a growing list of almost two thousand corporate partners - companies like microsoft, american red cross and adobe - to create options for you. not only that, we're using what we learn from these partners to shape our curriculum, so that when you find the job you want you'll be a perfect fit. let's get to work. email ma
when jesse jackson had to hold his nose and go to damascus to beg for the release of an american pilot who had been shot down by the syrians. drones are clearly the wave of the future because they save american lives but they're also effective for surveillance. they have far greater use than simply the kind of fighters we've used, and we actually also use them for domestic purposes. they were reportedly used in the case of the 5-year-old who was held in alabama. they have been used for weather. there are an estimated 8,000 drones so although it's part of the most secret program, military program, we have, there are also other uses. >> which starts to frighten folks domestically 37 good thing with the outcome of that alabama case but some folks think their civil liberties are about to be infringed upon at home. dan, i know from your reporting and the book you wrote there, was more debate within this administration about the transparency aspect of it than there was whether they would engage in a drone program. explain that. >> well, that's exactly right, and that comes up significantly i
have news to report about that race. it's for congressman jesse jackson jr.'s old seat in illinois, which he resigned. it's a heavily democratic district. whoever wins the democratic primary a week from tonight is widely expected to win the seat. that's why at the outset, 17 different democrats said they would like a chance at this one. 17. however, over the weekend that primary field got less crowded in a significant way when illinois state senator toi hutchinson, one of the front-runners, dropped out of the race. the important context here is this. new york city mayor mike bloomberg's superpac has spent $2 million and counting on pro-gun reform ads in this district. on friday, the pac launched this ad, calling out toi hutchinson by name for having an "a" rating with the nra. the other under pressure for the same reasons is debbie halvorson, who also got an "a" rating from the nra. debbie halvorson responded by including gun safety as an issue for her campaign. there it, the second thing on her issues page, gun control and gun safety. debbie halverson also posted this open letter
jackson was president. >> well, we can go back if we want to all the way back to george washington if we want to go far thuf back. so we all know even before thomas jefferson and how we became a country. >> i have no idea what that guy is talking about. nullification became a thing of the past legally in 1833 which is why plenty of people are saying the move in alaska is unconstitutional and will never, ever be enforced. >>> remember this? >> we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. i went to a number of women's groups and said can you help us find folks and they brought us whole binders full of women. >> well, if you thought binders full of women left the scene with the rest of 2012 you didn't catch jeopardy yesterday. >> here are the categories for you. hugo awards for science fiction. 1990s music. world place names. funny things people say. a bunch of stuff. potpourri really. and a binder full of women. >> a binder full of women for $400. >> she's the 111th justice of the supreme court. >> keith?

is that the conservatives out there, the people that really don't like the federal government, jack since andrew jackson's day, yet they benefit. when we have this big see kes tration that goes after nofl bases, army bases, usually tilts to the south. >> it takes us back to the debates back in the summer of 2011 when people showed up at tea party events and said, you know, i don't want the government messing with my medicare. the fact of the matter is that we have a real problem, and it is stoked, it is stoked by a group of players who operate within the republican party. what we desperately need right now is, frankly, a ronald reagan or a barry goldwater, william f. buckley, somebody who will stand up to the irrational section of that party and say, look, i'm a big conservative, but we have got to be big kids. we have to operate in the real world. >> i think we need john wayne for this one. i'd say john wayne and the panama canal. i think you need somebody to say we got to get a lot bigger in our thinking. great having you on john nichols and michael scherer of time. >>> this party is not big enough fo
's pining for the carter days. and certainly i mean he didn't control his own party. he had scoop jackson, democrats, hawks, abandoned carter and ted kennedy liberals abandoning him. what we can do is start looking at what it was like in his one term. just like we'll have a revision with president 41. carter did some great things in alaska and our national parks service. carter doubled the size of the national parks. and he saved all these great wilderness areas. well, it may not seem that big to you now. about 50 years from now when the rain forests are dead and so much of the world has been in ruin, saving all these bits of wild america will look like a greater achievement. only theodore roosevelt and fdr was a better conservation president than jimmy carter. >> how much would pop culture have an impact on some revisionism as far as jimmy carter is concerned? for example, the film argo? >> i think it's helpful because it's put -- it shows that film. i think the carter administration was trying desperately to get rid of those hostages. they were always between a rock and a hard place. wh
bernanke gave his very famous speech in jackson hole, wyoming? that was in august of 2010. and that's when the market really took off. the federal reserve obviously having a big influence on what was going on. we moved almost 2,000 points right there. that's the key point here. about 20%. that was just in five months. that was the second really remarkable leg of this rally. across 12,000 on february 1st, 2011. here is the european debt crisis. here is the u.s. debt downgrade. remember that? that was august, 2011. that dropped the market down. caused the dow in fact to drop below 11,000. that was in august of 2011. we had a few volatile months where things bounced around and then over all started moving up again. we passed 13,000. that was february 28, 2012. and basically we had a lot of worries. remember last year about europe and minor moves to the down side, and eventually you could see the final move up here to 14,000. okay. here's the next thing. an important thing. let's look at the markets today. i want to just flip forward to what's happening today. there's a lot of questions about
up and go. we replace chu, live, a jackson, these are people when you replace them, watch those appointments. >> it will be worse. >> pray to god you're wrong. if we can get the regulators to turn maybe not 180 but turn 120 so their slogan every day is come in and find a better way to create a good economy and jobs. wait a minute. don't come in with an attitude of let's get the bastards. >> they are going to turn 360. >> are there any names you like out there that you think would be palatable to administration but business as well. >> i don't know people. i just want somebody that comes in and has a goal of regulating sensibly and creating jobs, not being punitive. i like the president's immigration lines in the announcement. i think he was right on the button, if he can hold to that, fix the border, get a path to citizenship and keep people that we educate. i'm telling you, in government trade, he mentioned that. let's do it. it take us four years to get panama and south korea done. it was on the bush table. it took four years to negotiate and we didn't get anything else new. t
woodforde at jackson hole which said that the fed needs to promise the market that it will act differently in a zero bound environment when the economy starts to improve. we're going to keep going with this policy. and that's what is embedded in the interest rate policy, that's what's embedded in the qe policy. but right now, what's happening is the costs seem to be overwhelming, and the market -- the committee is just not comfortable being there. it's a bit like here's the promise. the promise was you put your hand out and i'm going to light a fire underneath it. and the policy is this, that even when your hand gets too hot, i'm not -- you're not going to remove your hand. you're going to keep in place. what we're finding out now is that this is a promise too far. the board is just not comfortable being there and it's going to have to find the language and the rhetoric to either put it back in place, or find something new -- >> if it's not working you've got to admit it. >> right. >> and you're not getting the benefits you thought you were getting. is this all because of stein? we heard b
